    They did exist, but didn't have nearly as many members as the NACD, or even what the NSS-CDS is today. Sheck was an officer in the NSS-CDS while he was president of the NACD.

    From the CDS Website:

    The NSS-CDS was started by cave diving members of the NSS (National Speleological Society, the largest dry caving organization in the world) in 1973. The organization grew out of meetings in Missouri and Indiana in 1973 at the annual NSS convention. Sheck Exley was the first chairman, and Volume #1, Issue #1 of the journal later became Underwater Speleology. By 1976, the NSS-CDS was the largest cave diving organization in the world, a position that it has maintained continuously since that time.

    The NSS-CDS was formed in 1973. The 1978 date is when they started training.
